The Office of Rail and Road is currently undertaking an investigation into the recent collapse, which will report back to Network Rail shortly. Whenever any work is carried out at a station by the industry when they install, replace or renew infrastructure, it must comply with the relevant accessibility standards.

Also, I shall be bidding for further rounds of funding for Access for All schemes in the forthcoming Spending Review.
